Ever Wonder What Brake Fluid Does?

Every vehicle has a number of fluids that need to be checked periodically, and brake fluid is one of them. You might have wondered what brake fluid actually does. It's used by your vehicle's brakes, but how?

Your vehicle's brakes work by clamping brake pads down onto the wheels' rotors. The friction this creates slows the car to a stop. The amount of force needed to do this quickly is many times greater than what a driver can provide by stepping on the brake pedal. It's the brake fluid pumping into cylinders that magnifies that force to what's needed. Without this fluid, your brakes wouldn't function at all.

Here at Scott Ford, our qualified automotive technicians can check your brake fluid and ensure that everything is in working order. Stop by at our location at 17812 Veterans Memorial Highway in Kingwood, WV and schedule an appointment today!
